Well I have broken my ankle...

I am determined not to let it ruin my summer but it's very frustrating.  I wanted to go the golf course with TJ last week b/c the weather was beautiful and it wasn't so humid.  Of course I don't play so I was wearing flip flops.  I walked off the tee-box and the wet grass caused my flip flops to just come right out from under me.  TJ and I heard the loudest sound ever and I knew it was broke.  They got me a cart and off to the Emergency Room we went.  They took x-rays and yes it was broke in 3 places! 
That was the worst night b/c all they could do was give me some pain meds and schedule me an appt with the orthopedic the next day.  TJ and I didn't sleep one wink that night and couldn't wait to get to the doctor the next morning. 
I got to the doctors office and after his first glance of the x-ray he immediatly scheduled the surgery for that afternoon.  I had never been put to sleep before or had any kind of surgery so I was so nervous.  After he told me about the surgery I cried for the first time! 
After the surgery I slept like a baby that night.  My leg was still completly numb and it was great!  The next day it started hurting again b/c I could feel the screws and plate that was put into my leg along with the cut and stiches.  Not the way I wanted to spend Memorial Day weekend for sure. 

Don't know what I would have done without these special people...oh and Ally up above.  She stayed right by my side the whole time!!!

Every day the pain is less and less.  I am tired of elevating and using crutches already though.  I go back to the doctor on Wednesday of this week and will get the details of my recovery plan. 
Oh and did I mention that TJ and I are supposed to be headed to Disney World and Universal Studios in 3 weeks...please pray that I'll have a walking cast by then.  I would be so upset if we had to cancel our plans. 

I have enjoyed catching up on all the news, shows, and blogs that I have missed latley.  I know God has a plan and I am trying to see the positive that will come from this...still a bit unsure of it at this point!  ha!

Sick Day...

The one thing about a sick day is that I can get caught up on my blogging.  I am stuck at home with my new king size bed, an always sleepy bulldog, and computer.  I am on so much medication typing is slow but sure (I feel drunk).  I have strep throat.  I haven't had this in forever and it's not as bad as I thought but highly contagious.  I am ready for the antibiotics to start working so I can get back to enjoying Summer!! 

A few weeks ago I was in one of my best friends wedding in Birmingham.  It was the day of tornados but don't worry all was planned indoors and everything went off without a hitch.  I swear I am the bad-luck-bridesmaid.  Kari got married during hurricane Fay and now Boles in the Birmingham Tornados.  Maybe the old saying "rain is good luck on youy wedding day" is true.  Here are some pictures from the big day.  It was so great to see some of my great friends from college.
